’Panther’ the cat rescued after days-long utility pole perch

貓咪黑豹棲息在電線桿上數日後獲救

 

【摘要2021.12.19..自由】@國際新聞中心

For at least two days and maybe more, residents of a suburban Denver neighborhood worried about the fate of a black cat called Panther who was perched atop a 11-meter utility pole.

至少兩天或更多天以來,丹佛一處郊區的居民擔心一隻名叫黑豹的黑貓的命運,牠棲息在一根11公尺高的電線桿上。

Panther stayed put despite efforts by his co-owner, Alexis Soberanis and others to coax him down in Aurora. Neither pleading nor the enticement of food did the trick.

黑豹留在原地不動,儘管牠的共同主人艾力克斯.索伯拉尼斯和其他人在奧羅拉設法努力哄騙牠下來,但不論是動之以情或是食物引誘都無法成功。

``Everybody’s been just like, `Put food down and it’ll come down eventually,’’’ said Aurora resident Jessica Meadows on Friday morning, when the city received its first snow of the season. ``That’s not going to happen.’’

奧羅拉居民潔希卡.梅多斯在該市下起本季第一場雪的週五早上說,「大家都說,放些食物,牠終究會下來」,「這是不可能的」。

News of Panther’s plight reached Aurora Councilmember Curtis Gardner and city officials dispatched a ladder truck Friday afternoom. After getting the truck into place, firefighters rescued the cat. Kimberly Medina, another Panther co-owner, said he had always been allowed outside. No more, she said: ``Never.’’

奧羅拉市議員寇帝斯.嘉德納聽到黑豹陷入困境的消息後,市政府官員下午派出一輛雲梯車。在車輛就位後,消防員救下這隻貓。牠的另一位共同主人金伯利.梅狄納說,牠一直被允許在外面活動,現在不行了,「永遠都不行」。
